Week 2 of the NFL preseason is underway, and that means more reps for starters. After key players sat out their teams’ openers, this weekend marked the brief returns of the league’s top players. On Saturday night, Tom Brady and Dak Prescott both made their preseason debuts.
That trend might not continue on Sunday, but both games are worth watching. The first will give us a couple of high-profile NFL debuts. In the second, one team will look to break a 10-game preseason losing streak.
The situation was also under extra scrutiny because of who Frank Clark is. While at Michigan, Clark was suspended for allegedly stealing a laptop and later dismissed from the team after being arrested for domestic violence, which lead to an eventual guilty plea to the charge of disorderly conduct. These past issues, along with uncertainty over what exactly happened during the fight, brought further scrutiny to Clark’s actions.
There is a little less uncertainty now, as an attendee at training camp that day had his camera at the ready as the training camp scuffle turned into training camp punch. Scott Granado shared some fantastic pictures that he captured that day.
The first week of the NFL preseason has been an eventful one, with position battles playing out and rookies getting their chances to shine. Things will continue on Saturday evening with three more games on the schedule, featuring varying levels of intrigue.
I think we’re stronger for it, I think we’ve come back better because of it. Unfortunately, it took a bad incident to get that done, and both guys have really bounced back.
